I recently watched two movies that are worth mentioning. The first is a British mini-series called Any Human Heart, with Jim Broadbent and Mathew Macfadyen. It follows a writer's journey through the 20th century, where he meets various famous artists, writers and politicians all the while struggling to write his own masterpiece. Some segments don't work as well as others, but the acting is great and production is beautifully done. I especially liked the score by Dan Jones. The second film is a French one called Queen to Play, starring Sandrine Bonnaire. This inspiring film, filmed beautifully on the island of Corsica, caught me by surprise. It's a joy to watch Bonnaire, a maid at a resort hotel, come to realize her true potential with the help of a mentor. Check them out.
